She Doesn't Really Care - Blogtown

"A tone-deaf sartorial decision or a hidden message from the first lady? #SheCares #ItsJustAJacket", Grisham wrote.

First Lady Melania Trump visited a Texas detention center Thursday to check in on immigrant children who have been separated from their parents at the U.S. -Mexico border.

The text is inscribed in graffiti-like script on the back of the green parka, but what is she really trying to tell us?

The first lady's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said the visit was Mrs Trump's initiative.

First lady Melania Trump's unannounced visit to McAllen, Texas to visit immigrant children in a detention center was meant to send a message that the first lady cares.

First Lady Melania Trump's wardrobe choice caused quite a stir on Twitter.

Third-graders welcomed the first lady with a large paper American flag they'd signed taped to a wall.

The former model's trip to the Upbring New Hope Children's Shelter came one day after the president signed an executive order to reverse his administration's policy about separating families at the border.


During her visit, she spoke alternately in English and through an interpreter, asking individual children in three classrooms where they were from.

Seems like she doesn't care what we think, though.

Slovenian-born Mrs Trump's trip comes after her husband made a shock U-turn on the policy introduced six weeks ago after images of youngsters in cages sparked worldwide outrage. Their physical and mental states are immediately assessed, and they are given orientation. He says staff have "a tremendous passion for working with these children" and the center is "their home".

Her visit comes amid growing outrage in the United States over a policy that separates migrant children who illegally enter the US with their parents.

"I'm looking forward to seeing the children and ask you how I can help these children to reunite with their families as quickly as possible", said Mrs. Trump.

Yesterday, his out-of-character move to scrap the policy meant families were moved to the front of the immigration queue but because of the court order, families could still face prosecution for crossing into the USA illegally.

The visit spotlights the dissenting role the first lady appears to have played, first behind the scenes and eventually more publicly, as her husband's administration has implemented what it calls a "zero-tolerance" immigration approach.
